a pair of sad eyes with a mona lisa smile..
from the area...
I also like the reflection of the olive leaves on the window, which is a part of everyone's life here..in all that's eaten (olive oil is used in all dishes, including deserts), burnt (many people burn in their stoves, broilers etc the leftovers from olive oil mills, which is still rich in oil) etc..

Wonderful shot of this portrait scene with a crispy clear perspective of this lady on the window, I really like your distabilised angle giving the shot even more enfasis, well done and keep up the good work, thanks for sharing

Cok iyi çerçevelemişsiniz güzel kadraj .. Fotografınız s&b olsa bence güzel olurdu konuya da uyardı.
Paylaşımınız için teşeekkürler..

Hi Fusun! How long since the last time I saw you around!But you are still in good shape relating photography. There is a mood of innocence in her face that I like a lot. Olive tree is one of my favourites trees so I´m happy to see it even through a reflection.

She still has some mischief in her eyes despite the doleful, crooked little smile. Was she thinking of her carefree days when she could hop and skip around wherever she wanted, like Fusun? Now she has to cover her head and stay home, scrub the floor, and wait for hubby: b-o-o-r-ing!
And those sunny olive tree leaves look so cheerful, but not enough to cheer up our melancholy maid.
Wow, what a story that photo tells! Is that a Mona Lisa or what?
Oops, just noticed Fusun already answered that. Don't know how I missed it earlier. Maybe I got stuck on the burning of olive waste part, since that really raises my hackles. The whole town smells like a pigsty in the winter when they burn that stuff.

Vayyy kimler gelmiiiis! ))) Daha bu sabah Mardin'de bir cocuk gordum ve aa bu Fusun'un Sinan'ina benziyor diye kulaklarini cinlattim. Ben de zeytin agaclarinin yansimasini cok begendim. Kizin hafif carpik mona lisa gulumsemesi ilginc. Sanki biraz alayci, kucumseyen bir edasi var. Iyi yakalamissin. Insallah daha sık fotograf koyarsin.

zeytinli kompo hoş olmuş gerçekten... tilt de dinamizm katmış... bu esrarengiz yüz tam net değil belki ama daha bir gizem katmış bu durum o hüzünlü gülüşe...
daha sık görmek ümidiyle sevgiler füsun hanım...

I like the angle/POV here. Obviosly she knew you were taking her photo, and I agree that she has a smile along the lines of Mona Lisa. Is there more of a story to the woman? Did you have any dialog with her? I would be interested in seeing a shot pulled back a little to see a little more of the house.

Nice portrait; I also like the distorted compo and - asa you noted - the reflections of the olive trees.
